A program for the Centennial Memorial Service held for Woodrow Wilson at the First Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, NC.
Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924) is the only U.S. president to have called Wilmington home. President Wilson's parents moved to the area in November of 1874 while Wilson was completing his first year of college. During this time period, Woodrow Wilson was simply known as Tommy. He befriended John Bellamy. It is also rumored that Tommy owned and rode the first bicycle in Wilmington, a gift from his father to improve his health. He left Wilmington in the fall of 1875 to attend Princeton University.
